I’ve had so much fun yesterday with all those awesome giveaways and Twitter parties going on at BEA. Unfortunately though, we’d have to revert back to discussions today with the topic about Non-Fiction books! (But don’t worry, there’s gonna be more giveaways and Twitter parties in the following days!)
What guidelines must we follow as bloggers--attribution, disclosure, honesty?
Try to be honest and original as possible! I’m no expert at Ethics but I think every book blogger should establish rules in his/her blog by making up a Review Policy.
Have you had an experience with plagiarism?
I Googled my name one day out of pure curiosity and I stumbled upon a site with my review of ********* on it. It’s not really that bad since there’s my name written below, but I think it’s more acceptable if they contacted me and asked my permission first.
Do you have recommendations to new bloggers about how to ensure that credit is given to whom/where its due?
My number one suggestion would to give credit to every person who needs to be credited especially meme creators, book tour/hop organizers, and publishers. And never ever plagiarize! You don’t wanna mess with the blogging community!
And there's an International Armchair BEA giveaway happening right now so make sure to enter!
